    Holster for Taurus 85 CH

    Frustrated. I need a holster for my Taurus 85 CH. Taking it on vacation next month instead of lugging around the H&K. This place is very low key and casual, so I'll probably be in a swimsuit most of the day. No I am not going in the water armed

    Have looked at the Barami Hip Grip (hate smooth skinny grips), Smart Carry (potential) and the ClipDraw (potential). Most holster makers show pics of their wares in the semi-auto style, so I can't get an idea of how they will look for a revolver. Somehow I can't see carrying an extra magazine for my revolver, in the attached pouch!

    So...I'm looking for suggestions. I'd like an IWB, low profile. Probably a soft, lighweight fabric. Not dependant on a belt.

    Any ideas?

    I use an Uncle Mike's size 36 for my 85 CHULT. For a quick run out the door, I don't even need a belt on to hold it up. Works for me!!!

    Actually, that's the holster I just threw away, as it had started to decompose. I may have to get another one, if I can't find something else.

    Thanks.

    Don Hume

    I have a Don Hume 715 for my Glock 26 which is comfortable, well-made, and reasonably priced from Gunner's Alley.

    I ordered one for my Taurus 85 (exposed hammer) as well but they were out of stock at the time, so I don't have it yet... but I expect it to be just as good.

    If you expect to be wearing it on the beach, you might want to stick to Kydex so you don't get sand trapped in the leather and wear away at your revolver's finish. Fist-inc comes to mind, although I have never owned any of theirs.

    There is a device called "Clipdraw". It screws in to the left side and clips to the pants. I have used it with a model 60 for years and it works. If you want a holster, many makers make a OTB or ITP holster that you can get pretty quickly. Talk to Brownells I know for a fact they have several holsters in stock that will fit a J frame.

    Heck there is also the rubberband trick that was used by J frame carriers for years. Simply wrapp a series of rubber bands around the grip.

    Good luck.

    As Eric Larsen has said, it will fit the 85 as well. And they are not very expensive.
